The X Factor – The Night Of the Poor Song Choice
Tonight the theme of the show was number one hits, but gee they could have called it lamest songs ever, as some of the song choices were appalling. At one stages I thought it was ’80’s night as that is where mainly the song came from.
It was two songs for each contestant and the top three were going through to the grand final next week.
Andrew Lawson – Uptown Girl – Billy Joel
Well Andrew takes the prize for singing the cheesiest songs on the show. Tonight he sang Billy Joel’s Uptown Girl, and previously Elton John’s Crocodile Rock. He did a shocking rendition.
Ronan said he looked way too uncomfortable “way too late for that happen in the competition” and “lacklustre”.
Guy Sebastian said “it looks like you didn’t even care.”
Maybe Andrew needs Kyle to get sick again so he can get a new mentor. Also Kyle Sandiland’s in his delusional state said it was good.
Andrew knew he had tanked.
Mahogany Heaven Bryan Adams
The set designer’s vision of heaven must be that there is lots of candles, thankfully no Angels came out as backing dancers, as that would have been too much.
The lead singer’s vocals were pitchy in a ok performance of a boring song.
Ronan thought they started off shaky but thought the harmonies were great.
Natalie thought it was a good perfomance but not a good song choice.
Kyle was feeling the love tonight and loved the performance.
Sally Chatfield – Just Take A Little Pill – Pink
Ronan, Guy and Natalie gave Sally a standing ovation. Guy said it was his favourite performance of hers of the competition. I liked it but I don’t think it was my favourite.
Altiyan Childs – The Living Years – Mike and The Mechanics
This is a shocking song. Natalie and Guy didn’t like the ballad for him.
Kyle Sandiland said “you are a constant brilliant performer” but did not like him singing soft rock.
Andrew Lawson – Something Stupid – Frank Sinatra
Oh God this song was another ball of cheese, but it appears I am in the minority as the judges loved it.
Mahogany – The Way You Make Me Feel – Michael Jackson
The rendition was excellent, but I don’t agree with Ronan, I don’t think they are a threat for the competition. However Kyle thinks they are in danger of going. He has to say that as he knows if they stay Andrew who he mentors will be going.
Sally Chatfield – Beautiful – Christine Aguillera
I think for reality TV fans will compare her rendition to Jessical Mauboy’s on Australian Idol. And I think Jessica’s was better.
Ronan and Guy were a bit ho hum about it, but Kyle and Natalie loved it. I think I was expecting a moment and it did not occur.
Altiyan Childs – Blaze Of Glory – Jon Bon Jovi
Another Jon Bon Jovi song of the competition. It was predictable Altiyan, crazy dance moves, shamen like facial expressions, but good vocals and fun performance.
Will he be in the grand final next week? I think so.
My predictions for the top three are Sally Chatfield, Altiyan Childs, and Andrew Lawson.
